>> supervisor cohen: thank you for the presentation. i'm going to thank you and the front side for your thoughtful -- the amount of energy that is going to carry through this management audit. thank you very much for raising to our attention the importance of the responsibility that we have to ensure that we are providing safe, and habitable housing for people in san francisco, and a supervisor that represents four other cities largest public housing development i know well the challenges the housing authority and residents face. i left an hour and a half meeting with residents over at alice griffith; we deal with many of the challenges on a daily basis. not a day goes by when my staff or i are contacted or personally affected -- when i consider that i have family members that stay in these developments, or when i received complaints about maintenance, and on a positive note, good news when we receive grants from the federal government to help with the sf rebuild. two weeks ago i attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony when the mayor, i am whole community got the opportunity to
that the chief and i and supervisor cohen and dr. campbell and the whole public health staff have always had dialogue and been concerned especially when there is an uptick in june of this year on violent crime and homicides in san francisco. and, so, we've been working together on creating a program which i announced some months ago, the ipo program, the ability to work on things that would interrupt and intervene earlier in the behavior patterns of people that would be both victims and perpetrators of violent crime in our city. to support the police department and law enforcement system of doing more predictive policing using both data and technology to help us do that. and then, of course, i think the most important part is to organize our communities and work with community-based organizations, families, religious groups, and everybody that's on the ground to find more ways to intervene in violent behavior out there and utilize resources such as education systems, our community jobs programs, others that might allow people to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic inci
issues are. in terms of the work both supervisor campus and cohen talk about working in tandem with the hud audit, in some of the findings to inform this process as opposed to duplicating this. i imagine it going to this risk assessment that we could narrow the focus with intention not to duplicate some of the work done by hud, correct? >> correct. >> chair: supervisor campos? >> supervisor campos: thank you for your comments supervisor cohen. it is important to take all those points into consideration. we welcome any additional feedback not only for members of this committee but also from members of the board. other members of the board. i wanted to get a better sense sort of what it means to work in tandem with hud for instance. one of the items that we have this compliance with applicable laws, federal, state, local. i imagine that would mean that hud is focusing on how federal law is being followed. and that for you to focus would be more than what is happening with local compliance. is that how it would work? >> anything specific to hud, the governing agency, we would l
led by supervisor cohen whose district has experienced an inordinate amount of violence throughout this year. we talk about it all the time. what can we do? for one, the ammunition that has been designed especially by law enforcement for military use has no reason to be in our homes and on our streets. and, so, we are introducing legislation focused on what has been labeled to be the hollow point bullets, but there are other types of bullets that are designed for more massive destruction of the human body that should only be in the hands of law enforcement and the military, and not in the civilian hands at all. and we want to ban them from possession in our city of san francisco. so, we're introducing legislation aimed at that kind of ballistics ammunition and banning them from possession in our city. the second piece of legislation is we believe that any person who purchases more than 500 rounds of any type of ammunition, notice should go to our police chief so that we have time to investigate as to reasons why that purchase should be made and understand who is making it. so, we a
supervisor cohen, want to applaud the mayor's leadership on this, to identify the most lethal ammunition, and to have allow the citizens to allow the police department to maintain the database. being the first city in the country to make that ammunition illegal as you will hear later, dr. campbell from probably the best trauma ward in the country will tell you what that ammunition does to people when they are hit by it. and then, again, to ask for a reporting on people that purchase as much or more as 500 rounds of ammunition so we cannot only track those people that are buying ammunition, but frequency of purchase as you can stockpile that ammunition. it is not going to be the -- any sort of suspension of the constitution. this is just smart, thoughtful community coming together with law enforcement so we know what people are doing and a simple question can be asked and if it's for target practice, that's fine as long as it's not the most lethal ammunition. the leadership in this country, you know, we've been divided for a while over small ideas and now we're coming together unfortunate
to repay. i just want to emphasize this is the first phase. supervisor malia cohen and i are going to be working hard with many of you here today for a long time. this is something we've dreamed of and i know you dreamed of it just in terms of being able to live in san francisco, afford it here. your kids are so happy to see their rooms and all their giants posters and the views of the bay. but we also want to assure you that we're just beginning to complete a really long-held promise, malia, that you and i and other supervisors have made. and we signalled that back when gavin was mayor. he made the bold announcement back in 2006, with the board of supervisors as a whole, that knowing that it was over $267 million of unmet infrastructure needs in the whole public housing complex, and that on an annual basis, the hud and the federal government were only able to come up with 16 million, and decreasing every year based upon their inability to get together on hud priorities, that we created hope sf. and out of that came a $95 million commitment. i'm going to see to it that not only eve
reported. in addition to the very successful gun buy back that supervisor cohen had mentioned, there's also other things that we are doing as well. i have instructed chief sur to make sure we introduce to the new cadets in the police academy as well as retrain every officer in our police department on school safety tactics in light of the sandy hook elementary school disaster. and he's going to do that. it's already begun. the curriculum is being designed for that. that's as important, making sure that we work in concert with our school district to make sure every campus is safe. that means school safety tactics have always been around, gets a refreshed training by everyone. chief suhr. >> thank you, mr. mayor. i want to start off by reassuring everybody that what you saw play out on television, however unimaginable it was, that the heroism and the courage of the teachers at that school and the actions of the officers to respond directly in was a product of training after the columbine incident in colorado. across this country, all law enforcement agencies have been trained not to wait when
's the latest from the fox business network, giving you the power to prosper. lori: hedge fund titan steve cohen is in davos, believe it or not at the world economic forum. you are surprised to hear that. melissa: i thought he had some issues. didn't think he would go over there. lori: they are at the headquarters in connecticut scrambling to stem the redemptions from the embattle hedge fund and answers questions from nervous investors about an sec investigation. what are they say? charlie gasparino has exclusive details. >> kind of interesting he is there. lori: what is he trying to do, gin up sympathy? >> he has gone in the past. there is incredible regulatory and prosecutorial interest in steve cohen and. there is wells notice. that means the sec's enforcement decision has recommended to the full commission they bring charges against the company. he personally is not mentioned in that wells notice but, you know, that is pretty dangerous stuff because the sec could theoretically shut shim down as a registered hedge fund which means he can manage his own money but can't take investor money. her
. supervisor kim, supervisor yeee, supervisor cohen and supervisor dufty and those are just too name a few. for mercy, these opportunitis are just few and far between. we were talking earlier, barry and i about how many people st. anthony's sees on a regular basis. these 89 affordable housing units and one manager's unit is an unbelievable accomplishment. and the sad thing it's just a drop in the bucket compared to the need we have. i think all of you know that, which is why you are here today. we're blessed to have the leader here today and i wish all your colleagues in congress could be as supportive as you have been over the years so people would understand the need. unfortunately with the situation that we have nationally, the funding for programs like this are really stretched and there is a lot the doubt if we'll see more of this funding in the future. it's phenomenal to have such a champion here today with us to bring that word back to the folks.
